  just apt-get install any window manager, to use it:

  make it default:

  update-alternatives --config x-window-manager

  (make sure you start x-window-manager, not session manager!) next time
you start X you should get the new window manager.

  to use it for given session:

  most window manager have a menu of different window managers (not all,
e.g. KDE is missing this important feature, or at least it was missing
last time I checked).
